I don't have anything bad to say about Las Mercedes. The food was pretty good, the premises are nice, and the service was fine. Based on the reviews here, I expected an extraordinarily fine dining experience. And it wasn't. It was ok.

We had a lovely evening but at the end of the night, we thought that our bill was wrong. Because we were celebrating the anniversary of some friends, we did not question the bill at the time, but instead phoned the next day. The owner told us that if we had an issue with the bill, we should have spoken... More

You'll find anything that you're looking for. If you like wines ask why they don't have the regular branded ones. They take care of all details to give you and amazing experience. The food is excellent as well. As for a chile ancho with cajeta gravy. You can see you don't need to go to a luxury restaurant to have... More

We went to Las Mercedes with a group of eight people for a long business lunch. As always the service and the food were great. We ordered two of each appetizer and every one of them was exceptional. We then each ordered our own entrée. We ended up sampling everything on the menu except one of the entrees and each... More

After checking the reviews I had very high expectations. When we went there without a reservation and had to postpone for the day after my expectations went even higher. Truth is... they met them. I'm not afraid to say this is one of the best restaurants I've been to in my life! Every now and then you get to meet... More

An out of the way gastronomic experience well worth the $2 taxi cab ride. Our server, Christian was as welcoming and charming as ever--his love and passion for the rich traditions and flavors of Mexican cuisine was contagious. So there we are in a beautiful warm house with six candlelit tables and POW were we transported back in time to... More

On a hillside in a residential district lies Las Mercedes. It's situated in house overlooking the town below surrounded by mountain vistas. The menu is all in Spanish, but the staff is mostly bilingual. The food is amazing and flavorful utilizing the freshest Mexican ingredients and includes specialities including a few I'll leave as a surprise. Also the tequilla, mescal... More

We had thebesttable, by the window but view is obstructed, views really not that good. Menu is quite unique, very sophiscated Mexican style. Very interesting and delicious menu.

Las Mercedes is a small off the main track gourmet restaurant in Guanajuato. Every dish is unique and Guanajuato wine is availiable. Try "Cuna de Tierra," a world class red wine. All dished use Mexican ingredients prepared for the most demanding palates. Escamoles, xoconostle, mezcal and blue fin tuna are highly recommended .
